Message from the President

MORDEN MEMO 

The Bulletin of the Rotary Club of Morden 
District 1145

Another bulletin, I know how journalists feel to get their copy in on
time. Last week some of us attended New Malden club who held a joint
meeting to meet the DG James Onions.

Apart from many other topics that one would expect at a regular
meeting the DG gave a talk about the future of Rotary, and I'm sure we
all have heard this before, however the words of Bob Dylan's song “the
times they are a changing" came to mind and they are a changing.

According to the DG, and I'm sure I will be corrected if I'm wrong, is
that we need new young members but the new young members do not like
the present format, so area are promoting the formation of ancillary
clubs to run in tandem with established clubs but it is not clear if
these new members will then be incorporated into the established
clubs, but we are due a visit from the Assistant Governor Paul
Hickson who will no doubt enlighten us.

On a more pleasant note John De Ronde held an exhibition of Art and
photographs over the Bank Holiday weekend at the old HSBC bank
premises. Myself and Pat went along as did other Rotarians so I hope
John did well for his Charity.

Note for your diaries there will be no meetings on 21st and 28th
September as the pub is being refurbished.
